The UNposing Guide

The UNposing Guide was inspired when people and photographers started asking me how I get such natural looking family shots. I’ll be the first to admit it. Posing is not my strong point. So, from the beginning of my business instead of trying to get my clients to look like models by posing them, I focused on capturing each client being themselves. I wanted to find what was unique and fun about each family. I realized that on each shoot I was using the same techniques to get families to have fun and loosen up. I started naming them so I would remember them easily while I was out shooting. And that’s where the UNposes were born.

What is an UNpose? It’s a means to get to the reactions and interactions I want from my clients. It’s a way to break the habit of saying “Cheese!”. And a way to break the ice. Every time I use an UNpose I get different results because each family is unique and different. I love capturing families being themselves at that particular stage in their lives. I don’t want to pose them and make them something they’re not. Sometimes it’s the UNpose I want to photograph and other times it’s the reaction from the UNpose I want. Both are great for capturing relaxed and natural family sessions!
The UNposing Guide is geared towards you Pro Mom*togs, both beginner and advanced. Besides containing 28 UNposes and pictures it also has helpful tips and tricks to prepare your clients and get them to have fun as well as an information sheet to send to your clients before your shoot. The information sheet is a way to get to know your clients before their shoot to make their shoot more personal and easy for them.

The UNposing Guide is priced at $95 and is an instantly downloadable document. It’s sized at 4×6 so you can either print it out on your home printer or at your favorite lab. Simply punch a hole in the corner and secure a metal ring or ribbon in the hole so you can keep it on you for reference. You can also download it to your smart phone for quick and easy reference while out on the go. The names of the UNposes are catchy making them easy to remember so when you’re out shooting there’s no more struggling with “What do I have my clients do next?”.

I really hope this opens up a fun new way to think about family sessions and challenges you to take your photography to the next level! Happy shooting and have fun! Remember, if you’re having fun your clients will have fun too!!!
